Mikado is a pick-up sticks game originating in Europe. In 1936 it was brought from Hungary to the USA and was mostly called pick-up sticks. This term is not very specific in respect to existing stick game variations. Probably the “Mikado” name was not used because it was a brand name of a game producer. The game got its name from the highest scoring (blue) stick “Mikado” (Emperor of Japan). The buddhistic Chien Tung also contains a stick called “emperor”.
